OROGOLD Helps You Solve Common Home Decor Issues

Home décor is such a subjective thing that it is not always easy to know if you are doing the right thing. With do it yourself decorating we can all stumble and make mistakes on the way or simply not know where to begin. Here we take a look at some of the most common issues people face and offer some helpful solutions.
The most common issue out there is color. Many of us struggle to find a happy medium; either plastering the walls with eye-popping bold hues or simply being too afraid to ditch the biege. The reason we get it wrong is the fact there are lots of factors to consider. First and foremost, what it the room used for? A bedroom painted bright orange will not create a relaxing atmosphere. Second, what size is the room and how much light does it get? Large, light rooms can take a bit of color but anything too dark in a small room will leave it feeling closed in.Bright red accent wall
For anyone wanting to add some color to their life (and their walls) without going overboard can find a happy medium with the accent wall. Just one main wall painted in a bright, bold color can look really effective. When teamed with a complimentary neutral color on the other walls it gives you the best of both worlds. You can use accents in another way by having walls a more neutral color and the accent color introduced with furnishings such as curtains and cushions.
Color is not the only common issue many of us face. Most of us have at least one room that is just too small. These small spaces can seem impossible to decorate nicely as they can often feel cramped whatever you do. There are ways to create the illusion of space. One light color throughout, maybe cream or white, with a mirror opposite the window to reflect light can make a big difference. Also, even though it’s hard in any room, keep it as clutter free as possible which will also help give the look of more space.Large painting hanging in living room
Sometimes you look at that big plain wall and cannot help but be bored. You want something to grab your attention and become the focal point of that wall. A big piece of wall art such as a large canvas or painting can look great but do keep a couple of things in mind. That large psychedelic print that caught your eye in the store is great but take your time. Is it the kind of thing likely to give you a headache looking at it day after day? For those who can’t make up their minds or like to change things regularly posters are a really good idea. You may well associate them with kids’ bedrooms and student dorms but you can now get a whole host of posters from fine art to film posters. In a large black frame they can look really classy without breaking the bank.
